I'm not joining the contest but--just for fun!--here's a look at a before-and-after of me!
My dear friend Jennie of Kikay Corner uploaded some of her old photos on her Facebook profile. Problem is, some of those photos included me! Ack! Can't believe I looked like this before:
And here's what I look like now:
Wow, diba??? It's amazing what braces, a good skincare regimen, fantastic hairstyle and color (thanks Louis Phillip Kee!), about 10 extra pounds, and staying out of the sun have done to me!
Other than those mentioned, there's really no other secret to looking good than being happy. I'm serious. When you're happy, you think life is worth living. Then you start taking care of yourself more. That means eating, sleeping, living, and loving right. And when everything's in place, you're happy and glowing! You can't fake a happy glow, sweethearts!
While GlutaMAX is currently promising that same happy glow, I really believe beauty comes in all shapes, sizes and skin colors. And though I've used a whitening product only once before (after a summer spent swimming without sunblock!), I now know that the best skin tip really is this: STAY OUT OF THE SUN! I know that's hard to do especially in this tropical country but ever since I started using sunblock religiously and limited my beach trips to once every two or three years (not a big loss since I really don't like sand), my skin has really become better--no dryness, no wrinkles, no spots... just lovely soft skin. Yey!
